  4. ISLAMABAD: A suspected US drone strike near the Pak-Afghan border killed at least six alleged terrorists on Monday. Those killed, in Afghanistan's Nangarhar province, reportedly belonged to global terror group Daesh. Sources added that posts were also destroyed in the suspected drone attack and the dead included Daesh commander Dawood Mehsud's son. On March 7, another suspected US drone strike in the Afghan province of Kunar killed at least 20 suspected terrorists. The terrorists reportedly belonged to the proscribed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). Among those killed was an individual responsible for training suicide attackers, Ustad Yaseen, and multiple suicide bombers. Coalition drone attacks have repeatedly targetted the regions along the Pak-Afghan border in an attempt to interdict the flow of militants and to neutralise high-value targets.

  6. Rovman Powell celebrates his first ODI hundred, West Indies v Ireland, Group A, World Cup Qualifiers, Harare, March 10, 2018/IDI via Getty Images HARARE: West Indies batsman Rovman Powell said his side are focused on winning all their World Cup qualifying games, after his century led them to victory over Ireland on Saturday. Powell´s maiden one-day international ton dragged the Windies from a difficult position to beat Ireland in Harare and reach the Super Six stage of qualifying. "We didn´t come here for four wins out of four, we came here to win every single game and we´re still on course to do that," said the 24-year-old, who brought up his hundred with a massive six that smashed a window. "Qualifying for the World Cup means a lot for the 16 million Caribbean people and that´s our aim." Hosts Zimbabwe also booked their spot in the next round by making it three wins from three in Group B with a comfortable victory over Hong Kong, while Afghanistan saw off Nepal to keep their slim hopes alive. Powell helped the West Indies reach 257-8 off their 50 overs, before the two-time World Cup winners took regular wickets to secure a 52-run victory, with Kemar Roach claiming 4-27. The Caribbean outfit can seal the maximum four points to carry into the Super Six round when they play the Netherlands in their final Group A game on Monday, when Ireland will have to beat the United Arab Emirates to be sure of progression. Only two teams from the qualifiers will join the world´s top eight ODI nations at next year´s World Cup in England and Wales. After losing the toss and being put in to bat, the Windies slipped to 83-5 as veteran seamer Tim Murtagh took the crucial early wickets of Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels. But captain Jason Holder, who hit a match-winning 99 not out in Thursday´s win over Papua New Guinea, combined with Powell in a sixth-wicket stand of 86 before falling to Murtagh for 54. The 24-year-old Powell took his time to get in as he reached nine off only 34 balls, but exploded into life late in his innings, muscling seven fours and as many maximums before being caught behind off Murtagh for a run-a-ball 101. Roach impressed with the ball in Ireland´s reply as William Porterfield´s men struggled to 32-3, but a well-compiled 63 from Ed Joyce gave the Irish hope. The former England opener holed out to Roach, though, and medium-pacer Kesrick Williams ran through the tail to finish with figures of 4-43, as Ireland fell short in their attempt to replicate their win over the West Indies in the 2015 World Cup. Zimbabwe continue good form Zimbabwe were seen as outsiders to reach the World Cup before qualifying got underway, but Hamilton Masakadza struck 84 as they thrashed Hong Kong by 89 runs for a third straight triumph. Hong Kong, who will reach the Super Six with victory over Nepal on Monday after stunning Afghanistan, bowled well to restrict Zimbabwe to 263-9 in Bulawayo. But all-rounder Sikandar Raza continued his excellent form by taking 3-30 with his off-spin as Hong Kong fell well short. Afghanistan need Nepal to beat Hong Kong to reach the Super Sixes, after finishing their Group B campaign with a six-wicket win over the Nepalese. Stand-in skipper Rashid Khan took 3-45 and Mohammad Nabi 4-33 as Nepal were bowled out for just 194, and an unbeaten 52 from Najibullah Zadran finally got Afghanistan their first points at the fourth time of asking. "In Hong Kong v Nepal, anything can happen, that´s cricket," said Khan. "We just tried to do our best to do what we could and chase it within 40 overs (to reach positive net run rate), which we did." The other game saw the Netherlands beat Papua New Guinea by 57 runs, but the Dutch need to beat the Windies and hope Ireland lose to the UAE to have any chance of going through.
  7. QUETTA: Security forces foiled a major terrorist bid in Balochistan?s Pishin area, arresting six suspected terrorists, said the Inter-Services Public Relations on Friday. According to the ISPR, the suspected terrorists have been arrested from Pishin?s Karbala area. The ISPR said that 500kg of explosive material has been recovered from the possession of terrorists. The recovered material included explosive jackets, sub-machine guns and improvised explosive devices, said the ISPR. The army?s media cell said that mines and tools of communication were also found in the operation. A number of such operations have been conducted in the province where security forces are battling an insurgency said to be supported by hostile agencies. The search operations are also being conducted as part of Operation Raddul Fasaad, a nationwide military operation involving all law-enforcement agencies launched in February 2017.
  8. Members of the emergency services work at the site of an explosion which destroyed a convenience store and a home in Leicester, Britain, February 25, 2018. Photo: Reuters LEICESTER: An explosion destroyed a convenience store and a home in the central English city of Leicester on Sunday, injuring at least six people, officials said. British police said there was no immediate indication that the explosion was linked to terrorism. Pictures and videos posted on Twitter showed flames leaping into the sky from the site which was reduced to rubble. ?All emergency services are currently dealing with this,? the police force said in a statement. ?Please avoid the area.? Later it said the blast was being investigated with the fire service. ?At this stage there is no indication this is terrorist-related,? Leicestershire police said. A local hospital said two patients were in a critical condition and four people had less severe injuries. A photograph published by the Leicester Mercury newspaper showed a blaze and the rubble of a destroyed building which the newspaper said housed a convenience store and a flat above it. ?We heard an absolutely massive explosion. It was pretty frightening,? the Mercury quoted an unidentified resident, who lives a few streets away, as saying. ?We went to look out of the upstairs windows and saw loads of smoke, and then a few seconds later massive orange flames.? The city?s fire department said it sent six fire engines after the reports of a large explosion and a building collapse. The Leicester Mercury said debris had been blown across the road in front of the site. Police said a number of other buildings were damaged and homes and businesses in the area had been evacuated.
  9. The Rohingya population has shrunk since the military crackdown, which has been called "ethnic cleansing" by the UN. Photo: AFP TEKNAF: Hundreds of desperate Rohingya Muslims are still pouring over the Myanmar border into Bangladesh every week, bringing harrowing accounts of torture and murder, six months after a military crackdown sparked the massive refugee crisis. One of the recent arrivals, Nur Mohammad, said his village in Myanmar?s Rakhine state was surrounded by Buddhist vigilantes for days before they were allowed to leave. ?The Moghs (Buddhists) torched our houses, kept us confined and starving,? Nur said. ?Villages are razed to the ground. We walked for days through mountains to reach here.? Thirty-year-old Enayetullah was among the 200 Rohingya who crossed the Naf river into Bangladesh on Friday. Most of his neighbours had left earlier, part of a 700,000-strong Rohingya exodus since August 25, leaving behind desolate and burned-out villages. ?We stayed all these months hoping the situation will be fine. But in recent weeks, security forces have taken away our young men. If they abduct 10, only one returns,? Enayetullah told AFP. Enayetullah also accused Myanmar security forces of torching his shop, prompting him and his three brothers to flee their home in Mognapara village near the town of Buthidaung. The military crackdown in the north of Rakhine has been called ?ethnic cleansing? by the United Nations and the United States. While Bangladesh and Myanmar talk of repatriating the refugees, the influx continues. Some days 200 people cross the border, on others a few dozen make the perilous journey. More than 2,500 have entered the overflowing camps in Bangladesh so far in February. Hundreds of Rohingya villages have been torched in the crackdown, according to refugees and monitoring groups. Human Rights Watch said Friday that another 55 villages have been razed since November. The Rohingya have been systematically stripped of their legal rights in mainly Buddhist Myanmar in recent decades and face rampant discrimination. Myanmar denies seeking to eradicate the minority but refuses to give UN investigators access to an area where thousands of Rohingya are believed to have been killed. In November, Bangladesh and Myanmar signed an agreement to repatriate some 750,000 Rohingya over two years. Last week Dhaka sent a list of 8,000 names to Myanmar for verification. No going back But Rohingya leaders bluntly refuse to return. The UN says anyone who goes back must be a volunteer, while Myanmar shows no sign of accepting the Rohingya as full citizens. ?If they send us back, we?ll be tortured or killed. We would rather be killed here in Bangladesh. Here, at least I?ll get a Muslim burial,? said Mohammad Elias, whose group has protested against repatriation in recent weeks. According to UN, since the repatriation deal was signed on November 23, 2017, nearly 70,000 Rohingya have arrived in Bangladesh through different routes in and near Cox?s Bazar district. "Those who came in recent days said they were tortured," Mainuddin Khan, Teknaf town police chief, told AFP. Some Rohingya who remained in Rakhine?s three main Muslim districts said the situation has improved in parts of the region, but life in the empty villages was unbearable. Maun Maung Tin, a Rohingya from Maungdaw, said it was impossible to buy or sell goods and they were afraid to complain to authorities. ?The new refugees say that they feel unsafe, threatened and harassed at home, in villages that are often abandoned,? said Kate Nolan, coordinator for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in Bangladesh. Aid agencies say there is still a critical risk of life-threatening diseases in the overcrowded camps in Bangladesh, where most refugees live in flimsy tarpaulin-and-bamboo huts. A new threat looms with the cyclone season that starts in April. The massive storms have killed hundreds of thousands along the coast in the past five decades. ?We are concerned about the nature of the shelters, how robust they are and if they are really prepared and equipped for the heavy rains,? said MSF?s Nolan. The Rohingya say they are unwilling to go back, despite the cyclone risk. ?At least there is adequate food here and there is no one to kill or torture you,? said Enayetullah.
  10. Afghan security forces keep watch at a checkpoint near the site of a suicide attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, February 24, 2018. REUTERS/Mohammad Ismail KABUL: A suicide bomber detonated his explosives near the diplomatic area of the Afghan capital on Saturday, killing at least one person, officials said. "This morning a suicide bomber blew up his explosives in Shash Darak area of Kabul, killing one and wounding six others," interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish told AFP. A security source, who requested not to be named, said the explosion happened near a compound belonging to the National Directorate of Security (NDS), the Afghan intelligence agency. The NDS compound is located near to the headquarters of NATO and the US embassy. In December, a suicide attacker on foot blew himself up near the same compound, killing at least six civilians. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the latest attack in Kabul, which in recent months has become one of the deadliest places in war-torn Afghanistan for civilians. Since mid-January, militants have stormed a luxury hotel, bombed a crowded street, and raided a military compound in Kabul, killing more than 130 people.
  11. Heinrich Klaasen launches it out of the ground, South Africa v India, 2nd T20I, Centurion, February 21, 2018/BCCI CENTURION: For the second time in his short career, Heinrich Klaasen halted India´s cricketing juggernaut as South Africa won the second Twenty20 international by six wickets at SuperSport Park on Wednesday. Klaasen slammed seven sixes in hitting 69 off 30 balls as South Africa chased down a target of 189 with eight balls to spare. The win squared the three-match series, taking it to a decider in Cape Town on Saturday. Both teams had to contend with a wet ball, with drizzle falling during both innings. "Klaasie got us ahead of the game," said South African captain JP Duminy. The wicketkeeper-batsman, who only got his international debut after Quinton de Kock was injured during the second of six one-day internationals, was moved up the batting order when it seemed possible rain would cause the match to be decided on a Duckworth/Lewis/Stern calculation. "We weren´t sure whether we would be coming off," said Duminy. "In the end it worked in our favour." Klaasen, who was man of the match when South Africa gained their only win in the one-day series, opened his score with two sixes and didn´t look back. Duminy played an anchor role before finishing the match with two sixes in an innings of 64 not out off 40 balls. "It was a tough one for the bowlers," said India captain Virat Kohli, who said he had no complaints about the umpires keeping the players on the field. "It was good from a spectator point of view. Once the game continued in the first innings we knew it would continue throughout. It was constant drizzle, it wasn´t too drastic, so it was fine to play on." Kohli praised Manish Pandey and MS Dhoni, who hit 79 not out and 52 not out respectively in an unbeaten fifth wicket stand of 98 off 56 balls to get India to 188 for four after they had been struggling at 45 for three. "I thought it was a winning total but you can´t control what happens with the weather," said Kohli. "You have to give credit to the South African batsmen. They were positive and took calculated risks." India paid the penalty for a lack of bowling options. Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal struggled to control the wet ball and was hit for 64 runs in four overs. Pandey made his career-best 79 not out off 48 balls while Dhoni thrashed his 52 off 28 balls. Pandey came to the wicket after a rare failure by Kohli, who was caught behind for one off fast bowler Junior Dala.
  12. Cricket is a sport that thrives on the contest between the bat and the ball. Apart from the occasional byes and leg-byes, the contact with the body parts is neither ideal nor intentional. When you compare it with football, where legs and head usually do the job, cricket is all about making contact with the willow. And, given the restrictions in gentleman's game, it's quite bizarre if anyone scores runs with their head, right? Wrong. In a crazy turn of events, a batsman ended up scoring a six after the noticeable help of an opposition bowler. During the Ford Trophy - a domestic 50-over competition in New Zealand, a batsman smashed a six after the ball ricocheted off the head of the bowler and sailed over the ropes. Ol' Jeets used Andy's head as a ramp today. Don't worry, nobody died. #FordTrophy https://t.co/g2EsYaYifJ — The Niche Cache (@thenichecache) February 21, 2018 The incident occurred in the third preliminary final of the tournament between Auckland and Canterbury when Jeet Raval struck a delivery straight back at the bowler Andrew Ellis. Such was the power of the shot that even before Ellis could get out of the way, the ball hit his head and then soared over the boundary for a six. Despite the massive impact of the ball on his head, Ellis seemed okay as players from both sides checked up on his well being. He was taken off the field for a concussion test and was declared fit enough to resume the match. He went on to bowl seven overs for figures of 2-52. Canterbury Captain Andrew Ellis was Struck on Head by a straight Shot from Jeet Raval who scored 149 The ball hit him so hard on head that it struck on his head and then sailed for a six, he left the field for concussion test but was able to return for the Match #FordTrophy pic.twitter.com/rS0hDnzlU5 — Abhijeet (@TheYorkerBall) February 21, 2018 Raval, who has represented New Zealand in nine Tests, said he was concerned about the Ellis' well-being and was relieved when he returned to the field. "Whenever anybody gets hit in the head, your immediate concern is for the person, and I was worried Andrew had hurt himself," Raval was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo. "But, thankfully, it soon looked like he hadn't been injured by what had seemed a nasty blow. He's a true Cantab, a very tough nut, and it was a relief for me to see him carry on and complete the game without any visible effects. My hope for him is that he won't experience any delayed concussion. It's certainly not pleasant for anyone to experience that in a game," he added. Despite being shaken by the incident, Raval didn't let it affect his batting as he went on to score a match-winning 149 off 153 balls with 10 fours and four sixes, powering Auckland to 304/6 in 50 overs. In reply, Canterbury were bowled out for 197 in 37.2 overs with spinner Tarun Nethula recording figures of 4-43.
  13. File Photo KARACHI: Authorities rounded up at least six suspects Saturday night following various search operations here in different areas of the metropolis, Geo News reported. Three suspects were arrested following a raid last night in Surjani Town, Superintendent of Police (SP) for Orangi Town Abid Ali Baloch said, adding that they were identified as Ashraf, Abdullah, and Alam Khan. The police official noted that contraband, as well as 9,500 litres of Iranian diesel, were recovered from the arrested suspects. On the other hand, three other suspects were detained after an operation in Orangi Town's Pirabad locale, Baloch said, adding that the arrestees were reportedly involved in street crime. Weapons were recovered from the arrestees, the security official noted. Firing in Shah Faisal Colony At least one person was injured in a firing incident in the city's Shah Faisal Colony, rescue sources stated. It is yet to be known how the firing incident came about and what the condition of the wounded is.
  14. A bus and wagon collided due to over-speeding, according to reports GUJRANWALA: At least six people were killed and 20 others injured when a passenger bus and wagon collided in Wazirabad, Gujranwala on Tuesday, Geo News reported. According to rescue sources, the collision happened due to over-speeding around a bend. Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif has directed authorities to ensure best possible medical treatment for the injured.
  15. The highly-anticipated St. Moritz Ice Cricket tournament in Switzerland concluded with the Shahid Afridi-led Royals clinching the two-match series 2-0 against the Virender Sehwag-led Diamonds. After winning the first match, the Royals comfortably chased down the Diamonds' total of 204 runs in 16.4 overs with eight wickets to spare. The unique tournament gave the fans many iconic moments to cherish. If the concept of playing cricket on ice was not interesting enough, the unforgettable moments including Sehwag's blistering fifty in the first game, Jacques Kallis' 90 in the second and even Afridi's touching gesture towards his Indian fans; undoubtedly made the two-day tournament a memorable affair. Indian Fangirl Folded The Indian Flag While Taking A Picture With Shahid Afridi Thinking He Might Get In Trouble. #ShahidAfridi Asks Her "Flag Seedha Karo". Thank You #Afridi, Lots Of Love From India. ðð®ð³ #IceCricketChallenge #IceCricket #Pakistanpic.twitter.com/zIZPnN4giL — Sir Ravindra Jadeja (@SirJadeja) February 10, 2018 But, amidst all the buzz surrounding the players, there was another guy - not a cricketer - who won over the fans in his own unique manner. Ranveer Singh is an actor who has portrayed many characters in his career, but only a few know how good this lad is with the willow. The man who impressed everyone with his acting skills with his portrayal of Alauddin Khilji in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmaavat', left the opposition and his fans shell-shocked after displaying his batting skills in the Ice Cricket tournament. Just like his movies, Ranveer delivered a blockbuster performance at St. Moritz too. The 32-year-old displayed perfect batting strokes while facing opposition bowlers. And, with six runs required off the last ball, he even emulated MS Dhoni by rocking back and hitting a massive six over long-off to win the game. Apart from his batting, Ranveer also enthralled fans with his uncanny commentary in a British accent. An ardent sports fanatic, Ranveer is also the brand ambassador for the English Premier League (EPL) in India and has attended several international sports events around the world. In fact, he will soon be seen playing Indian cricket legend Kapil Dev who led the country to its first-ever World Cup title in 1983.
  16. During his playing days, Virender Sehwag was undeniably a force to be reckoned with. His unorthodox batting technique allowed him to hammer the opposition bowlers all around the park. And, even after calling time on his career, Sehwag continues to be a dominant force on social media with his wit and humour. But, while he may have retired from international cricket, Sehwag clearly hasn't forgotten the art of batting. His genius with the willow was once again on full display during the unique Ice Cricket tournament in Switzerland. Taking on Shahid Afridi-led Royals XI, the 'Nawab of Najafgarh' turned back the clock and took the fans to his yesteryears where he once reigned supreme. Despite the bone-chilling conditions in the backdrop of breathtaking Alpine range in the resort town of St Moritz, the 39-year-old created a unique record of scoring the first four and six of the first of its kind tournament. And, if that wasn't enough, Sehwag went on to etch his name in the history books as the first-ever cricketer to score a fifty in the Ice Cricket tournament. There was a reason why 90's people used to say - "Sehwag ki batting dekh kar chalte hain" @virendersehwag ðªðª#IceCricket pic.twitter.com/i1j41KezwD — Prashant Pareek (@prashan235) February 8, 2018 After deciding to bat first, Palace Diamonds got off to a roaring start, following a flabbergasting rendition of masterful strokeplay by their captain Sehwag who smashed a 31-ball 62 including four majestic fours and five towering sixes. In the end, it was his old nemesis Shoaib Akhtar who put an end to Sehwag's blazing innings. Hathiyar chhode hain ,chalana nahi bhoole hain :) Great fun on the ice. pic.twitter.com/V1bjFATGnI — Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) February 8, 2018 Following his outing in temperatures below zero degrees, Sehwag took to Twitter and posted a brilliant one-liner about his knock. "Hathiyar chhode hain ,chalana nahi bhoole hain :) Great fun on the ice," he tweeted. @virendersehwag .. kya baat kaha Viru... — Sourav Ganguly (@SGanguly99) February 8, 2018 The post garnered a massive response from the fans and it even evoked a response from Sourav Ganguly. Impressed with Viru's comment, Ganguly replied: "kya baat kaha Viru". Here's what the twitterverse had to say after witnessing Sehwag back in action: Kya baat hai Paji..sher toh sher hai.

  17. The black car Alfa Romeo of the young man suspected of wounding several foreign nationals in a drive-by shooting is blocked by police and Carabinieri enforcement at Macerata. -AFP ROME: A shaven-headed far-right supporter wounded six foreigners Saturday in a brazen drive-by shooting in central Italy and was later arrested, police and local officials said. After the morning assault in the town of Macerata, the suspect got out of his car, made a fascist salute with a tricolour Italian flag draped over his shoulders and shouted "Viva Italia", or "Long Live Italy", witnesses said. He opened fire in eight areas in the town and also targeted the office of the centre-left Democratic Party, press reports said. "Six people were injured and all of them are foreigners," said town mayor Romano Carancini after the shooting spree spread panic in the sleepy town of 43,000 people. Police confirmed in a tweet that "the wounded persons were of foreign nationality", adding that the "presumed author of the attack is Italian". Television footage showed the suspect being arrested at the town´s war memorial. Police also posted a photo of the capture. Italian media identified the man as Luca Traini, 28, and said he was a member of the far-right anti-immigration Northern League party, who had run in local elections last year. Media reports said police found a gun in the man's vehicle, a black Alfa Romeo. "Someone who shoots is a delinquent, irrespective of the colour of his skin," said Northern league chief Matteo Salvini, in full campaign mode ahead of legislative elections on March 4. "I'm in a hurry to be in government to bring back security, social justice and serenity to Italy," he said. Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni meanwhile made a pitch for unity, saying: "Hate and violence will not divide us." The attack comes a day after a Nigerian asylum-seeker and drug dealer was arrested in Macerata over the gruesome killing of an 18-year-old Italian woman whose dismembered body was discovered in suitcases earlier this week. 'Hate will not divide us' Police found the clothes of the victim, Pamela Mastropietro, in the house of the 29-year-old Nigerian as well as a bloodstained knife. However, no official link has been made between the two incidents. Italians head to the polls in national elections next month, with immigration shaping up to be a key issue. The country is a favoured landing point on Europe's southern coastline for migrants making the perilous journey across the Mediterranean, often aboard unseaworthy boats, to enter the continent. But 2017 was a turning point for Italy: the country went from large-scale arrivals in the first six months to a sharp drop-off, thanks to the controversial agreement between the EU and Libya. Some 119,000 people landed in Italy last year, down 35 percent on 2016. The Northern League is part of a populist coalition tipped to do well in the elections. According to opinion polls, the alliance between ex-prime minister Silvio Berlusconi´s centre-right Forza Italia (Go Italy), the post-fascist Fratelli d´Italia (Italian Brothers) and the Northern League leads with more than 35 percent ahead of the March 4 vote.

  20. When I started my working out, I had little to no idea about how to go with either my workout or my diet. Anyway, I still made it a point to hit the gym. Just like most dudes, I always thought that workout would take care of fitness needs. But I was wrong and after a couple of months in, I figured that my diet needed attention. Though I had worked with a dietician in the past, I didn't see any credible results. This is when I got in touch with Shantanu Prasher, Editor for Health at MensXP. He broke down the fundamentals of fat loss and building muscle and made me familiar with how a physique transformation is achieved. He made it very clear that things that would come next wouldn't really be easy and needed discipline. I was put on a calculated diet and a structured training program. I learned the importance of calculating food and maintaining a sound sleeping pattern. He worked from ground up on my physique and more than anything, we chased strength. This is how my program was divided- 1) Upon starting, we worked on leaning out first to get rid of the skinny fat state I was stuck in. Lifting progressively heavy while in a caloric deficit is what I did. Focus on strength was of prime importance here. 2) After the above re-composition, I was now primed for starting my bulk. My calories climbed up week by week along with the weights I was lifting in the gym. Focus on strength was of prime importance here as well. 3) The workouts were tied mostly around the big basic lifts like squats, deadlifts, lunges and OHP. The aim was to get stronger every week. In under eight months of training, I've realized that a fitness regime is not just about a before and after transformation picture. It is a lifestyle. It makes you mentally and physically strong. It helped me 'adult' mentally in a short span of time. How you'd ask? Besides changing my diets and workout plans according to my progress with Shantanu, what was the biggest effort at my end was to figure the time to actually work out and prepare my meals. Apart from 45 minutes of workout and 15 minutes of warm up and psot workout stretching, what came new to me was walking. I quit driving to my gym and started walking instead. All in all this took me at least 2 hours a day and in the lifestyle of a millennial, this IS a huge task! This is brief look at my day- 1. Scheduling my day. 2. Putting alarms for every meal. 3. Waking up early to cook the meals and count my calories. 4. Sleeping early so I can wake up early and recover well. 5. Reaching work on time so I can leave early 6. Reaching the gym on time so I could meet my friends / family later. If this isn't adulting, I wonder what is! Bringing a certain balance between what u need and what exactly are your priorities. Helps you get your life on track, keeps you away from negativity and almost acts as therapy for all your stress. If you wonder what happened to my social life then I'll keep it real. Your social lifestyle does come in the way of regular training and diet (read: the weddings, the birthdays and festivals) but once you've put your body in the habit of a certain routine, training, 2-3 days of outings in a month won't change anything. The biggest struggle is to start and take that one big step~
  21. Members of the Taliban gather at the site of the execution of three men accused of murdering a couple during a robbery in Ghazni province, Afghanistan April 2015. Photo: Reuters WASHINGTON: The United States imposed sanctions on six men said to be linked to the Afghan Taliban and the 'Haqqani Network' on Thursday, less than a month after President Donald Trump ordered cuts in security aid to Pakistan over its alleged failure to crack down on terrorists. The designation of 'Specially Designated Global Terrorists' announced by the US Treasury Department bars the six individuals, including at least one Pakistani national, from accessing the US financial system. "This action supports the president's South Asia strategy by disrupting these terrorist organisations and publicly exposing individuals who facilitate their activities," said Sigal Mandelker, undersecretary of the Treasury for terrorism and financial intelligence. Four of the individuals ? Abdul Samad Sani, Abdul Qadeer Basir Abdul Baseer, Hafiz Mohammed Popalzai, and Maulawi Inayatullah ? were designated for acting on behalf of the Taliban, while the remaining two ? Faqir Muhammad and Gula Khan Hamidi ? were sanctioned for acting on behalf of the Haqqani Network, the US Treasury Department stated. Details of the sanctioned individuals can be viewed here. The press release by the treasury department further stated that the "Pakistani government must work with us to deny the Taliban and the Haqqani Network sanctuary and to aggressively target their terrorist fundraising". While unlikely to cause many problems for its targets, the move further underlines Washington?s frustration with Islamabad for providing sanctuary and other aid to the insurgent groups. Downturn in relations If aid curtailed, US will have to fight terrorism alone: PM Abbasi The prime minister said any sanctions against the state would be counter-productive to the country?s own battle against militants In a surprise tweet on New Year?s Day, Trump said the United States had ?foolishly? given Pakistan more than $33 billion in aid and ?they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking our leaders as fools. They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more!? The announcement sent US officials scrambling to suspend security assistance, later estimated at up to about $2 billion, to the nuclear-armed ally. Pakistani officials were infuriated by the action. Its National Security Committee of senior civilian and military chiefs denounced it as ?completely incomprehensible.? US Ambassador David Hale was summoned to the Foreign Ministry for an explanation. Pakistan is a crucial gateway for US military supplies destined for US and other troops fighting a 16-year-old war in neighbouring, landlocked Afghanistan. A senior Trump administration official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said on Jan 5 that Washington hoped that the aid suspension would be enough to communicate its concern to Islamabad. Pak won?t ask for aid but expects recognition of contributions: COAS tells Centcom chief US Centcom chief and a senator called army chief to discuss Pak-US cooperation this week: ISPR But the official cautioned that the freeze was also not the only tool that America had to pressure the country ? suggesting it might resort to other measures, if needed. ?We are considering many different things, not just the (financial) assistance issue,? the official said. The United States has long blamed the militant safehavens in Pakistan for prolonging the war in Afghanistan, giving insurgents, including from the Haqqani Network, a place to plot attacks and rebuild its forces. ?We believe we owe it to the Americans in harm?s way in Afghanistan. We simply can?t ignore the sanctuaries if we are going to make progress in Afghanistan,? the official said.
  22. Name: Dinesh Gandhi Being a businessman by profession, my work took up all my time. For more than 10 years, I was just going in and out of the gym, spinning my wheels with no results to show. Though I was decently fit, I always had the itch to get a six pack. Well, this is nothing surprising and I am sure every guy who hits the gym regularly, thinks about getting a chiseled six pack at least once in life. To achieve that, I did everything possible and was even told by trainers to get on steroids. My hectic schedule and the misinformation that came from desi trainers left me dazed and confused. © Dinesh Gandhi As my work requires a lot of travel, I thought it would not be possible as I did not have the luxury to pack my meals with me at all time or eat 6 meals in a day. In fact, I even tried doing this and needless to say, I failed miserably. I was hitting the gym and almost eating unregulated. Nothing was monitored like it should have been. I had no idea about counting calories and how to make cooking less cumbersome. Then, a friend of mine who also had a similar work schedule as mine, advised me to seek the help of a coach who can understand my body and routine. It was then when I came across Pratik Thakkar of GetSetGo Fitness. I spilled the beans to Pratik and asked him if he could help me. I spoke to him and he told me that I could still achieve my goals while managing my travel and it was no big deal. But, he also made it very clear that that I would have to put a little more effort to understand how nutrition worked. © Dinesh Gandhi Under his wing, I was introduced to the concept of Flexible Dieting. He made me believe that it is totally alright not to carry lunch boxes everywhere and take unnecessary stress while traveling. This came as a relief to me. He then helped me put my overall nutrition in line and got me working on a structured routine. I still have the same hectic schedule with frequent travel but I do not have to worry about my food. I now exert total control over things and life has only gotten simpler and to my surprise, it's way more fun. What I would advise readers is that if I can do it as a middle aged and very busy man, so can you. Just seek the right advice and be patient with the process
  23. Naqeebullah and three others were allegedly among four suspects killed in an ?exchange of fire? with a police team headed by former Senior Superintendent of Police Malir Rao Anwar on January 30. Photo: Naqeebullah/Facebook KARACHI: Six police officers were suspended after the probe committee formed over the extrajudicial killing of Naqeebullah Mehsud found the 27-year-old to be innocent. On Saturday, former SSP Malir Rao Anwar was removed from the post in this regard. Rao Anwar's name has also been placed on the Exit Control List (ECL) on the recommendation of the probe committee, sources said. Naqeebullah and three others were allegedly among four suspects killed in an ?exchange of fire? with a police team headed by former Senior Superintendent of Police Malir Rao Anwar on January 30. Naqeebullah killing: Rao Anwar removed from post, placed on ECL Security agencies probing Anwar's assets in Karachi and Islamabad However, Naqeebullah?s relatives and acquaintances disputed the police claim that the deceased was a militant. In response, SSP Anwar had informed Geo News that Naseemullah's real name was Naqeebullah and he was a wanted man living in Hub after arriving from Dera Ismail Khan. He also dismissed the social media campaign in deceased's favour and stuck to his stance that he was a terrorist On January 18, the Inspector General Police Sindh, Allah Dino Khawaja ordered the formation of a three-member committee to probe the extrajudicial killing of Naqeebullah. On January 20, the committee found the 27-year-old innocent, sources had informed Geo News. According to the initial investigation report, the committee had termed SSP Rao Anwar?s allegations against Naqeebullah ?baseless?, sources said. In its report, the committee stated that there was no proof found of Naqeebullah being a terrorist. The 2014 FIR presented by Anwar was also bogus, it said. The committee in its report has also recommended the registration of a case against Rao Anwar and other personnel involved in Naqeebullah?s killing. The name of Anwar should also be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL), the initial investigation report stated. Naqeeb?s father reminisces about ?good-natured son? Mohammed Khan Mehsud, father of slain Naqeebullah Mehsud, said that his son was a good-natured individual and a very easy going person. Naqeeb?s father reminisces about ?good-natured son? Naqeeb?s family finds it hard to believe he?s no longer around Mehsud said that Naqeeb left behind two daughters and a son. The grieving father demanded that the culprits behind the killing of his son should not go scot-free in order to save others like him. Naqeeb?s father also said that his son had a shop in Karachi. His family finds it hard to believe that he is no longer around, till today his friends and tribal leaders visit their home to offer condolences. Speaking to Geo News earlier, relatives of Naqeebullah alias Naseemullah said that the deceased came to Karachi from South Waziristan one year ago and ran a clothing shop at Al-Asif Square, and was not involved in any unlawful activities.
  24. MARDAN: As many as six more suspects are held in Aasma rape, murder case by Mardan Police on Friday, authorities informed Geo News. DPO Mardan said that DNA samples will be taken from the suspects, adding that the authorities have geo-fenced the area. Moreover, the district government has called an All Parties Conference on the case today. The District Nazim Hikmayatullah Mayar informed that the APC will give its next course of action if the rape and terror clauses are not added in the case. Four-year-old Aasma went missing on January 13 from the Gujjar Garhi area and was found the next day at 3pm. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Inspector-General of Police Salahuddin Mehsud confirmed on Wednesday that the minor girl found dead in Mardan's Gujar Garhi area was strangled to death, but added that the post-mortem report points towards sexual assault. ?Looks like the culprit?s intention was to sexually assault [the minor],? he told media here while detailing the incident. Post-mortem points to rape before murder of minor in Mardan: IG KP Aasma went missing on Jan 13 from the Gujjar Garhi area of Mardan and was found the next day after efforts by police and family, the IG said The minor?s post-mortem also shows signs of torture, the IG said. The body was reportedly found in sugarcane fields. Police joined the search after being informed of the incident at 9pm on January 13, the IG said. Mardan RPO and DPO subsequently visited Aasma?s family on January 14 to record details about the incident, and an FIR was registered after Aasma?s body was found. The IG said that an investigation team, headed by DPO Mardan, was formed to probe the case, and help from the counter-terrorism department was also utilised. IG Mehsud commenting on the progress in the case said that a daily report is being prepared in the case. ?Police trying to conceal facts? Mardan District Nazim Himayatullah Mayar early today alleged that the police are trying their best to conceal the post-mortem report. Mayar said that according to the post-mortem report it is clear the girl was raped before being strangled to death. The girl belonged to an unprivileged family and her father works as a labourer in a foreign country, he said, adding ?we will ensure justice is dispensed.? He stressed that the district government will extend all help to the victim's family. "The incident highlights the criminal negligence of the KP government," he said, adding "not a single official of the KP government went to condole the victim's parents and no one took notice of the incident." "ANP [Awami National Party] will use its democratic right and stage a protest against the government," he added. However, DPO Mardan Mian Saeed earlier in the day negated the claims and said that the girl was strangled to death, and said the post-mortem report does not point towards rape. There were torture marks on the body, he added.
